WS has a really good running start, with great character drama… More WS has a really good running start, with great character drama utilizing the "man out of time" theme all over the place to create some very wonderful moments between Evans and the supporting cast. It's an oddly effective coming of age story, for a 95 year old man! The plot soon develops to typical espionage fair if you're familiar with spy-films, using "big brother" themes on a global scale but loses a lot of its credibility as everything thickens, especially when explained posthumously through a digitized super-villain Swiss accent. I mean the absurdity of the algorithm alone already raises eyebrows, let alone implementing them in some giant floating autonomous death machines that have no safeguard. Hopefully though you'll be so drunk on the beautifully choreographed action sequences and banter between Evans and Johansson that you just go ahead and accept everything happening is plausible. This CA sequel possesses everything loveable about Marvel films and more. Great visuals, phenomenal action, quip humour, effective character drama...but the "more" this time is that it manages to capture the political tone and essence of espionage/conspiracy spy films while retaining itself as a fun, action packed adventure lead by a protagonist that clearly has depth. Kudos Marvel!
